UGC NET Admit Card 2021, New Exam Dates, Hall Ticket Download

Things have certainly become easier with the advent of the mighty internet. We can book our train tickets online, do our shopping on the internet and also attend workshops and online classes on the internet. 

Along with the many functions that we’ve used the internet for, we’ve also taken advantage of it to shift a lot of our national-level exam registration processes online. Take for instance the 2021 UGC NET, we had registered for it online, and everything else related to it is also scheduled to happen online. From getting to know about the UGC NET exam dates, to the download of the UGC NET admit card 2021. It shall all happen online.

The online system has especially come as a huge relief to UGC NET aspirants from lesser-known areas. Through the internet they can now easily know about the UGC NET exam pattern, and also the UGC NET 2021 admit card date.

In this article, I shall be talking about the steps to follow on the internet to download the UGC NET admit card 2021, about the UGC NET exam dates that are yet to be released, the UGC NET exam pattern. I shall also tell you about the UGC NET 2021 admit card dates.

That said let us dive right in.

UGC NET Exam Date 2021

Let me state this without beating around the bush. The UGC NET exam dates are not known yet. The NTA has not released the final 2021 UGC NET exam dates yet. Sure, they had released the exam dates several times in the last few months, but have postponed them every time.
Anyway, according to me, the final exam dates will be announced by the NTA soon.

That said you might already be aware, that the NTA had merged the UGC NET 2020 December cycle with the 2021 UGC NET June cycle, and had come out with a definitive 2021 UGC NET exam date when it had released the notification for the same.

However, as time went by, due to some reason or another, UGC NET exam dates kept on getting postponed. It was mostly due to clashes with some other national level exam dates.

Exam Events Important Dates
UGC NET Admit Card Release date TBA
Last Date to Download Admit Card TBA
NTA UGC NET Exam Dates 20,21,22,24,25,26,29,30 November 2021, & 01,03,04,05 December 2021

Now, having mentioned the UGC NET admit card 2021, I think its time to know about the dates of the same.

UGC NET 2021 Admit Card Date

Talking about the UGC NET admit card 2021, it will probably be released 10-15 days before the date of the 2021 UGC NET exams. Now according to my estimates, the NTA will release the UGC NET admit card 2021 date by either the end of October 2021, or by the first week of November 2021.

That is because, there’s been some buzz that the UGC NET exams will probably be held sometime after the Diwali of 2021, i.e., after the 5th of November 2021.

However, you should not rely too much on these estimates because they are at best just estimates. According to me, you should keep your gaze fixed on the NTA’s official website for regular notifications & for all the authentic updates.

Furthermore, you should be happy that you have all this extra time to conduct your revisions for the exam.

So, study hard. You’ll get to know the dates of the UGC NET exam soon and also the UGC NET 2021 Admit card dates.

Now, since I have mentioned the word revision, let us quickly go through the UGC NET exam pattern for a bit.

UGC NET Exam Pattern

Talking about the UGC NET exam pattern, it is a subject-based, 3 hours long exam with 2 papers, namely Paper 1 and Paper 2. Both papers have only objective type questions. All questions are compulsory. The total number of questions is 150, with 50 in paper 1 and 100 in paper 2. Questions have a weightage of 2 marks each. Thus, the UGC NET exam has maximum marks of 300.

Paper 1 contains questions from various general topics like ICT, Research Aptitude, teaching aptitude, Reading Comprehension, Data Interpretation, Communication, Arithmetic Reasoning, People and Environment, and Higher Education.

Paper 2 is unique for every subject. It consists of questions asked from the complete syllabus of the subject chosen by the candidate, up to the post-graduation level.

Paper 1 and Paper 2 combined have to be attempted in a total of 3 hours. It’s normally up to the aspirant how he/she would want to divide the 3 hours for the 2 papers. However, earlier the time allotted for Paper 1 used to be an hour. Also, wrong answers do not carry negative marking.
In case you want to go through the complete subject-wise UGC NET syllabus, you can find it here.

Now that we have gone through the UGC NET exam pattern, let us return to the topic of UGC NET admit card 2021, and talk about how to download the same.

UGC NET Admit Card 2021 Download: Steps

Well, in the lines below I have mentioned the steps to download the UGC NET admit card, but I’ll have to confess, they are not of the 2021 UGC NET admit card, but rather of the previously held UGC NET exam in 2020.

However, it shouldn’t be much of a bother for you, because its not as if the NTA changes the steps to download the UGC NET admit cards every year. So, you can relax. The steps that I have mentioned below will most probably remain the same, even for the admit card download for the 2021 NET exam.

So, here’s the UGC NET admit card download process:

  • First, go over to NTA’s official website.
  • Then, you need to look for the “Download Admit card for UGC NET” button on the page and click on it.
  • Clicking on the aforementioned button, you’d be sent to the candidates’ login page.
  • Here you’d need to fill in your application number, date of birth and security pin, then click on the “submit” button.
  • After clicking on the “submit” button, you’ll have successfully logged into a page that you can download/print out for future reference.
  • You can also download/print out your admit card by clicking on the option available on the same page.

UGC NET Admit Card – Some Things to Keep in Mind

  • Do make it a point to download your NTA UGC NET admit card as soon as it becomes available for download. This is to avoid unnecessary hassles that you might encounter later with the NTA website due to the problem of an overloaded or faulty server.
  • Make sure to read every instruction on your UGC NET admit card extremely carefully, both on the front as well as the back sides.
  • Do make it a point to keep a copy of the exact photograph that’s printed on your admit card.
